The Copper Corgi Fiber Studio

| Monday, February 27, 2012

I would like to introduce your to "The Copper Corgi" other wise known as Sarah Meurer.
Sarah is an indie dyer who lives in Savannah, Georgia. She is an experienced in knitting, crocheting and as she calls it 'hording of yarn!' (Love the expression)
She is a graphic designer who has found passion in dyeing and combines art with her passion of design.
your inspiration you ask...her mascot, Penny.
How can you not love such a cute face!

The Copper Corgi has provided a fantastic Superwash Merino Sock yarn for this review.  I was so pleased with this yarn for a few reasons that I would like to tell you about.  Her colors are so well blended.  They have just the right mixture of bold with the touch of neutrals to pull the color off in the right way.  Take a look at the review yarn that is appropriately named "Bloody 'ell!"


Another thing that really sets this yarn apart is how she skeins her yarn.  She sells smaller skeins that are perfect for 2-at-a-time socks.  This is one of my favorite ways to knit my socks. If you have never tried this method, you are in for a real treat.  Each skein has 2oz. -245 yards. and retail for $13.00 each.  I feel like this is a really reasonable price for this yarn, you will be very pleased with all aspects of it. 
If you are not a sock knitter another advantage of the smaller skeins is that you can use them for smaller projects; fingerless mitts, baby booties etc.  Another fantastic reason to check out this etsy seller.
I started a textured sock pattern with this yarn and can I just say...I am loving it.  I was amazed at how soft this yarn is and that it is 100% superwash.  Sarah really puts some thought into her choice of base for her yarns.  (She also has fiber braids if you are a spinner)

 As you can see, her color choices are stunning.  If you are a 'Hot pink sock' lover like I am, you might want to check out this Pink!

The Copper Corgi receives a 5 Needle Review Rating!

Just remember;

I'm currently knitting my second pair of socks, ever. I haven't tried 2-at-a-time yet, it looks a bit intimidating but I can see myself trying it sometime in the future. The color way I would knit would definitely be "Bloody 'ell" it looks stunning.

None of this new-fangled two-at-a-time stuff for me. I'm an old-fashioned dpn girl. And I would love to knit some socks out of the Playing in Puddles colorway.

I have yet to do two-at-a-time socks, but I love two-at-a-time sleeves. The major sticking point has been to separate the yarn into two balls -- this is the perfect solution! I'd love to knit some out of Sweet Tea, but if I don't win maybe I'll give Clifftop a try.

I would love to try this yarn in my sock machine.Someday I would like to try 2 at a time--always up for a challenge.

I'm a big fan of 2aat socks. The only reason why I still knit any socks any other way is if I want them to match and I'm too lazy to try to split the skein. Copper Corgi solves that problem! Stormy Marsh is my favorite.

I haven't yet tried two at a time sock, but I'd like to. Maybe if I win the Sweet Tea skeins... I saw many Copper Corgi color ways that I liked, but my favorite is Much Ado About Nothing.

I became an instant fan of Copper Corgi yarns when I saw the Peach State colorway. If it's offered as a sock yarn, I'd love to make a pair of socks with it.

I, too, like the smaller skeins so that I can knit 2 socks at a time - with a difference. I don't have both pairs on the same needles. Instead, I have two sets of dp needles. I knit the cuff and leg of one sock, then the cuff and leg of the second sock. Then I turn the heel of one, then go to the second set of dps and turn the second heel, and so on.

I'm not a fan of knitting socks two-at-a-time, but I do still love knitting socks! I'm drooling over the Clifftop colorway...

Tracy at: February 29, 2012 at 1:19 PM said...

I guess I'm knitting my socks in what is now the old fashioned way--one at a time on double pointed needles. I'm in love with the Bloody 'ell colorway!

I love the Kelly green yarn. So bright and perfect for March. Thanks for the review! I have looked at her etsy shop a few times, but wasn't sure...now I will buy.

I love playing in puddles (along with every other color). And, no, I just can't seem to knit 2 socks at a time but I like my socks long and make toe-up so I love two skeins.

{ Galena } at: February 29, 2012 at 8:09 PM said...

I've never done two at a time yet. I just got Melissa Morgan-Oakes book so I'm looking forward to trying it.
I really like Clifftop and Night Sky, but I'm drawn to blue, brown and black colorways in general. Cove is very pretty too. So many pretties to choose from.

I love tidal pool, but many others are gorgeous as well.

I don't enjoy 2 at a time socks, I must confess. I love using DPNs. Thanks for the giveaway!

I haven't had a chance to sit down and try knitting two socks at a time but it is on my list of things to learn/do :) I love Copper Corgi yarns and just purchased a skein of the 'Kelly' colorway last week. SO Gorgeous!!! I really love the Kelly, Candlelit, Saxon Blue and Clifftop colorways that are currently in her store!

{ Kendall } at: March 1, 2012 at 11:25 AM said...

I really like knitting two socks at a time so I can avoid the "second sock syndrome". I would love to knit with the Saxon Blue Corgi Sock Yarn. That colorway is yummy!

{ Oceancat } at: March 3, 2012 at 4:11 PM said...

I always knit (if humanly possible!) 2-at-a-time socks from the toe up! I really like the "blushing" colorway - would love to add it to my sock yarns!

{ Lynda } at: March 4, 2012 at 5:52 PM said...

I've never knit 2 at a time socks. I'd love to learn how! I really like either the Saxon Blue or Clifftop in the sock yarn. Both colours are very pretty

{ Sarah } at: March 4, 2012 at 9:01 PM said...

I've never knit 2 at a time on the same needle and do not think I'd enjoy it. I would LOVE to knit with her Playing in Puddles colorway.

{ Jennie Kaderabek } at: March 5, 2012 at 4:55 AM said...

Beautiful colorways!
I'd love a pair of socks in the clifftop colorway.
I enjoy 2 at a time sock knitting, toe up. I've knit both one and two at a time and prefer to finish and wear my socks right away. I've even knit two at a time mittens!
